divided attention.

it’s always hard for me to fall asleep at night.
there is too much going on up there,
too many footsteps marching around,
making sound,
all vying for my undivided attention.
i can’t really give that, you see.
undivided attention.
i’m not even sure what that is–to feel completely spellbound by someone or something.
i think my ability to hold onto things tightly
disappeared when i realized
i want to give a piece of myself
to the most deserving.
